North Korea’s “Big And Important Event” – A Street Opening!

Amid social media chatter of Pyongyang evacuations, North Korea told foreign journalists to prepare for a “big  and important event” on Thursday (ahead of The Day of The Sun) – conjuring images of nuclear missile tests or Supreme-leader-led military drills. However, the “big and important event” turned out to be… a street opening!

After much secrecy, Beijing Correspondent for Channel News Asia Jeremy Koh reports that foreign reporters in Pyongyang watch Kim Jong Un preside over opening of the skyscraper-lined Ryomyong street…

In fact, as Reuters noted, North Korea often uses such visits to showcase new construction projects.

In recent weeks workers have been putting the finishing touches to the skyscraper-lined “Ryomyong” street in central Pyongyang.

Kim has made frequent visits to the street to inspect construction work there, according to state media. North Korea has in the past marked its April 15 holiday with tightly choreographed military parades.

Is Kim lulling America into a false sense of security?

Or are the skyscrapers a clever ruse to hide ICBM launchpads in clear sight?
